Just got my driver's license!

I was so nervous taking the test But it wasn't bad at all

Only had 1 error , but luckily it didn't fail me I stopped on the line that is right before the crosswalk, and you're supposed to stop behind it.

I live in a town that's a major train hub in California and my driving test took me over some train tracks. I completed the test, thought I did pretty well, but when we got back to the DMV the lady said, "You failed to stop at the train tracks so that's an automatic fail!" So that's how I learned that even if there's no train coming you're supposed to stop at train tracks.
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

in my state you just have to actively look both ways at the train tracks before crossing, no stopping :dunno:

Congrats. I remember when I got my license. Do you have a car already or do you have to ask for the family car?

I go in a couple of days to get my Motorcycle permit. I need to brush up on my traffic rules!

Do you have a car yet? I've got my license last year. Driving the parents Dodge minivan around mostly to work. My dad and I looked at a few cars already. My saved up stash is only $1500. So, it's been slim pickings on Craigs list and AutoTrader for the most part.

I do have my eye right now on a 1999 Dodge Avenger for $1400. It's metallic red with the V6. The passenger door was hit good, but other than that, the price is right. You can only get in and out of the car on the drivers side. But who cares if I'm only in it. Got to order a new door some place if I get the car.
